MMD candidate for Chipata Central Constituency parliamentary by-election Mtolo Phiri has successfully filed in his nomination papers.
The PF’s Lameck Mangani has also filed in his nomination papers.
Phiri was accompanied by hundreds of supporters including MMD President Nevers Mumba, Chembe Nyangu, Mwansa Mbulakulima, Muhabi Lungu and Alexandra Miti.
Reports reaching us are that there was confusion in the PF camp as some cadres from far flung areas like Mtenguleni and Mgubudu almost caused violence because they had their own preferred candidate.
In Kafulafuta, the UPND candidate Brian Chitafu, MMD’s Everlyn Mwanawasa and PF’s James Chishiba and NAREP have also filed in nominations.
In Solwezi East UPND’s Villie Lombanya has also filed in. UPND is not taking part in Chipata while MMD is not taking part in Solwezi East.
In Kafulafuta Mwanawasa was accompanied by party vice-presidetn Michael Kaingu and other officials.
